Forms and Facts for Setting Up Your Interior Design Business

The Complete Collection of Interior Design Forms and Explanations of How to Use Them

  • Have you ever had your profit shrink to nothing because a vendor’s bill turns out to be more than you thought it was when you sold it to the client?

  • Have you ever worked on a job that had way too many client meetings but never enough client decisions to complete the job?

  • Have you been financially hurt by paying out more deposit for merchandise than your client has deposited with you?

  • Does your Proposal for Sale of Merchandise protect you from law suites with an arbitration clause?

  • Have you ever assumed your clients order will deliver tomorrow only to find that the manufacturer hasn’t started building it yet?

All these things have happened to me in my 30 plus years in the interior design business, but they don’t have to happen to you.

One of the secrets to making a good profit on your interior design product sales is to have all the right forms for selling and ordering merchandise your fingertips and knowing how to quickly and easily use them.

I am sharing my extensive collection of Interior Design forms and templates that I have developed over the years so that you can copy them and use them in your own design business.

Included in the book are many completed “real design business” examples from my studio illustrating how to use the forms. All the phrases and details are there for you to include, protecting yourself financially and maximizing your potential profits.

My exclusive Design Biz Process chart is also included in this package. This exclusive template graphically shows you what pieces of your interior design you should be presenting at your Schematic and Design Development meetings and how to coordinate your design time billings to those meetings.
